Although we were very much looking forward to welcoming you to the Association of Bainbridge Communities Environmental Conference next weekend, out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing the event.
Recent King County recommendations aimed at reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 have suggested avoiding bringing large groups together. Your safety, and the safety of our staff and community at large, are of the utmost importance to us. While it saddens us to have to postpone a weekend of bringing people together over a topic of the utmost importance – something we are extremely passionate about doing – we know this is the right decision for all.
We’re disappointed not to be seeing you next weekend but hope to see you this fall for the conference. We encourage you to spend next Sunday sharing a walk with friends and family through one of our Island’s magnificent forests.
IslandWood acknowledges that we live and work on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people, who have been stewards of this region's land and waters since time immemorial, and who continue to protect these lands and waters for future generations, as promised by the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, the Treaty of Point No Point of 1855, and the Treaty of Medicine Creek of 1854.
While the majority of our work takes place on Suquamish (suq̀ʷabš) and Duwamish (dxʷdɐwʔabʃ) land, we also conduct programs on the land of the Snohomish (sduhúbʃ), Puyallup (spuyaləpabš), Muckleshoot (buklshuhls), Skokomish (sqoqc’bes), and S’Klallam (nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm) peoples.
